  • but fun walking around the small promontory to get views. It is a walk from the main road but you should be able to get there view cliff walks in both directions.

  • Park your car at the lighthouse car park. The lighthouse itself is not accessible and therefore of no interest, but a walk from there to the centre of Ferragudo and back (8 km in total) is wonderful.....  more

  • It's just a working lighthouse, nothing much to see. Not worth a special trip. We got lost and went to have a look as we were right there anyway.

  • Great for a quick daytime or night time view down the coast.
  • Pity about the high fence and barbed wire, which did not enhance photos. Good views from nearby on the cliffs.
  • Great site seeing but lacks infrastructures for it
  • Amazing point to start or end a walkabout!
  • Great spot to watch sunset
